so its a bit weird but the thing that pisses me off the most are dicks who are just intentionally trying to be dicks. For instance I was on an RP server on ss13 , someone who was supposed to be roleplaying decides to break most rules and then gets off scot free. he was literally being a russian dick. on the more IRL side of things I do just see people and hate them from looking at them.

its an odd topic

You have every right to dislike someone based on their actions such as trolls on game servers. And everyone does so at first i thought this was one of those completely pointless threads.

Then i saw this:

" I do just see people and hate them from looking at them."

grow up and stop judging people, everyone has a story and everyone knows something you don't. Keep that in mind. Stop being a bigot

Trolls can be entertaining, and sometimes even necessary to make us stop and rethink about ourselves and our positions. (did happen to me several times)
Most of the time though, they should just be ignored without much thought or hatred, I like it when the internet is free (as in free speech) for everyone, even those we don't agree with.

Like that Rayvolution guy! Ugh!

But seriously; yeah sometimes people irk me, usually it's forum-go'ers though on the various communities I'm a part of, when it's someone being totally thick headed or a complete arse-hat. I love a good debate about hard topics (See: http://www.java-gaming.org/topics/missing-title/33234/view.html ). Even when they get heated it's still great intellectual development.

...but then, there's stuff like this, where the main intent of the post is the start of a great debate and then flies off the handle because of one idiot:
http://www.java-gaming.org/topics/what-your-game-isn-t-a-pixelated-retro-masterpiece/33901/view.html

The guy who Riven eventually banned is the person I am talking about of course. That's what I think gets under my skin the most, a fun debate turned total sour by a random idiot.

I'm a jerk.  And sometimes I'm purposefully a jerk.  The reason is that poking at others assumptions and being annoying is actually quite effective at getting them to re-example their own believes...assuming they have the ability to do so.

Well actually its human nature , im sure there are people in your life who when you just meet for the first time you go I hate them , you do not know why but you just have a compulsion to dislike.

With a restricted communication channel it's vastly easier to despise the other end.

Yes I do. Despising people is easy, especially if you don't understand them.

It becomes harder, though, as I grow older. Once I understand more of someone, it becomes harder to despise him or her. Becoming a father multiplies this effect. So over time there is less and less despising people in my life. Which is a very good thing.

Despising people is easy. Too easy. It feeds on the same stuff as trolling. For me, despising and trolling is not much different, I try to avoid doing both.

I don't want to waste any resources in despising somebody even though I admit that I frequently discover some people who are increasingly nasty, vicious and wicked with me. There are those who insult me in the street because I'm ginger. There are those who insult me in the street for an unknown reason. There are those who try to annoy me during my intimate dinners (for two) because they can't bear that a woman can find me physically attractive. There are those who treat me like an object or at least as a citizen with no right. I was, I am and I will ever be a free citizen. I will never give up defending my rights, my freedom of thought, my freedom of speech, my privacy, my right of personal portrayal, my rights as an author, ... I will never stop considering myself as a human being. I'm sad to see so much discrimination in our society and some people seem to take pleasure in hurting others.

This is the definition of prejudice. Not cool.

What does this have to do with Java or game development again? Seems like 4chan might be better suited for this conversation...

They are useful because they can maybe help steer the direction of the types of posts in this forum: maybe next time OP wants to talk about being prejudiced, he'll remember that other people expressed a disinterest in this kind of post, and post about something interesting instead.

But for the sake of going down the rabbit hole: I fail to see how posts discussing the uselessness of posts discussing the usefulness of other posts are useful.

[Derail!!]
If we're going to throw in the "useful discussion" cards, let me just say this (Although it's more general, not really specific to just this thread):

It's miscellaneous for a reason! We're a community, thus, sometimes silly community posts come up. Us, as a community, should be able to discuss basically anything we want for any reason regardless of it's association with java gaming. JGO doesn't just have to be strictly about Java, that's boring! How will we ever get to know each other more personally if we just have to stick "To business"? Why can't we just talk about other random things, is that not the entire point of this subforum?

Yes, we've had some silly topics in the past that made me cringe, but those really are far and few between. I don't see how this is any different than almost all the other stuff in this forum.

I don't disagree with you. I guess this specific thread (who else hates people for no reason?) irked me a little bit.

Maybe my cringe-reaction is a little more sensitive than yours. I just don't see the merit of a thread celebrating prejudice. I do see the merit in calling out prejudice for not being cool, hence my complaining about it.

Oh, I wasn't meaning to call you out or anything. I agree with not celebrating prejudice. I guess I've just seen a uptrend of people complaining about "this isn't about java gaming!!" every time someone posts anything non-programming related. But it was more just directed at the whole situation community wide(and beyond this thread), not you. Smiley

From my experience people who purposefully try to be mean/rude (aka trolls), are those who are too immature to have fun on the internet but also be respectful to people they come in contact with.

I tend to just try and ignore them.
